Fashion Wellies: Why We Love 2021’s Biggest Boot Trend

The cult shoe trend you want to get know

By Guest Styler | 20th May 2021

 Once reserved for trudging through muddy fields on a countryside escape, this year the good ol’ Wellington boot is getting a high fashion upgrade!

You might have noticed some of your fave shoe labels coming out with this utilitarian style, typified by a chunky sole, rounded toe and knee-high length. Somewhere between Windsor Castle chic (you know Princess Di would have rocked these!), and a futuristic, sci-fi feel, these boots are being donned the “it” style for 2021!

We love seeing this pragmatic style paired with a super structured blazer for an ultra-edgy feel, just as much as when paired with a floaty midi dress for the perfect balance of femininity and grunge – hello, Dior vibes!

If you’re keen to shop the 2021 cult shoe trend, check out our fave finds below! And if your bonkers for boots, check out these 12 knee-high boots we’re falling head over heels for.
